Elisa Pulliam is a blogger, author and speaker who has written extensively about mentoring and motherhood. Having worked for years with young women, she has a wealth of knowledge about how to disciple and teach our children.
Now that my own daughters are 11 and 9, I’m really wanting to learn more about how to invest in them in the best way possible so I’m just as excited about today’s show as I hope you are.
The Journey to Patience
Elisa shares her journey from anger to patience, why she made the move from “Elisa” to “Lisa” after receiving a vision from God, and how God brought her healing through counseling and learning to surrender. She offers some great tips to help other moms start this journey:
- Identify your triggers – what makes you angry?
- Learn to manage those in the way that’s best for you
- Reach out to someone for help
